questions. there will be people in the intel committee that will not be able to ask secretary panetta, general ha*pl and others about the -- general hamm and others about the d.o.d. piece. the best thing for the senate to do, i think, is to have a bipartisan select committee where you combine the resources of all three of the committees who have jurisdiction over different pieces and create a professional approach to solving the problem. it will be run by our democratic colleagues because they're in charge of the body. it should be. there have been times in the past, iran-contra and other examples of where committees combine their resources to make sure that they full lip understand what was being said. if you stovepipe this and one committee goes one way and the other committee goes another way we're not going to get the complete picture of what happened in benghazi. that's what we're asking, is that the majority leader and minority leader create a select committee of the three kw-ts that have primary -- committees that have primary jurisdiction over each moving part so we can get to

it less serious. president obama, defense secretary panetta informed very quickly last thursday morning after this happened. the pentagon pledging to continue to conduct the missions and make no mistake. this might have been routine surveillance over the gulf but it was a classified military mission that the iranians went after. brooke? >> here we are on, what is this? thursday today and this was last thursday. was this kept quiet? >> reporter: yeah. it was. and the pentagon says the reason is it was a classified mission and they say they're not in the business of talking about it until, frankly, cnn reported it and they started getting questions from reporters about it. you know, look. the iranians know what they did and not a big secret from them. were they trying to shoot it down? how much do the iranians want to cause over those vital oil shipping lanes in the gulf right now, brooke? >> barbara starr, thank you very much, at the pentagon for us. >>> now president obama gets four more years in the white house. is it gridlock or does he have a new strategy perhaps for working with the
's not changed? >> panetta's comments about the military, why are so many top generals ethically challenged? i will say this, i'm looking at stocks that have the potential to be able to stabilize here as they did during the debt ceiling, these are domestic companies with a really good yield, good companies that benefit from decline in commodity costs that's going on worldwide. >> the short interest is not abnormally high. >> we don't have a cushion. because a lot of hedge funds, by the way, a lot of hedge funds are trying to lock in their gains right now because they felt they didn't do it fast enough last year. hedge funds trying to sell stocks because of the fiscal cliff. you get a reversal of fiscal cliff, they both reverse and we go back on this growth track, i hope washington knows this is at stake. i don't think they do yet. >> jim, we'll join you tonight. we'll get philly fed at the top of the hour. and we'll talk to rich bernstein, former merrill guy, a guy talking about making money in spite of all these fiscal worries.

. how important was this? well, the president and defense secretary panetta were very quickly informed last thursday morning when this happened. >> well, if they try it again, presumably barbara, u.s. military jets could scramble and they could get into some sort of dog fight if you will with those iranian jets. how realistic is a scenario like that? >> well, look. the pentagon is not looking for a shooting war with the iranians. top officials are very clear about this. but what were the iranians up to? are they trying to send a signal of more aggressiveness over those critical oil shipping lanes? the pentagon, the obama administration can only let the iranians go so far. if they try this again, that's really the key question. it might have been an unmanned drone, but how far do you really let the iranians go in such a critical economic area, wolf? >> all right, barbara. i know you'll stay on top of this. thank you. let's get back to politics. right now president obama certainly owes his re-election to an extremely well-organized campaign. you know all about the rallies. you know about
, and have some interaction with you. yes. >> question for mr. panetta. my understand was that actually obama has not reduced the core pentagon budget, but i think your chart implies that he has been an unassuming that when you said 5% reduction, you including all of the savings from hopefully us getting out of afghanistan. but even when obama presented his budget, he said this is going to be, this is actually an increase in the core pentagon budget for the next 10 years. so am i misunderstanding something, or is that correct? >> a little bit. the reduction i talked about, 5% in is reduction in real terms. if you actually look at the spending in current dollars, and don't make any correction for inflation, from 2009 to 2010, it's been pretty much flat in terms of current dollars. when you take account of inflation, the base budget, has only declined by 5%. but the war budgets have declined dramatically. so actually at one point we have budgets that were in the range of come in today's dollars, $717 billion a year for national defense, including war, and now what we're looking at is something
